Just to say a huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored me ahead of the London Bikeathon on 31 August - I am delighted to have surpassed my fundraising target of £1,000 ahead of the date. I'm planning to go out for my last long training ride tomorrow, and this has given me just the boost I need to make it a biggie!
The date now feels pretty close at hand - I'm excited, but am also a little apprehensive. I feel quite well prepared (I've covered nearly 1,000 miles since registering for the ride) but 100 miles will be the furthest I've ridden in one go, and sticking to a training plan alongside work and new baby commitments has been a little tricky. However, I'm confident that the support I've received and thoughts of the amazing Max and his wonderful family will inspire me over the hills and across the line. Bring it on!
Now, can it ever be too early to start with the carb loading...?
